How many times have you been told to “do what makes you happy?”
When you bounce around from city to city, it becomes quite apparent what you actually enjoy. In a new city, you are surrounded by nothing but the unfamiliar. It’s almost like an empty basket and it’s up to you to fill it up with whatever excited you!
Whether I’m in Vancouver, Cape Town, or any other city, I always find myself engaging in the same activities, as well as the communities that surround it. If I’m not on the road, you can find me checking out local events, festivals, markets of any sort, networking events, the outdoors, yoga, culinary experiences, or anything artsy! Regardless of where I am, these are the things that bring joy into my life, and even more so when I get to share these experiences with others!
What gives you energy and brightens up your day? It could be anything like hiking a mountain or something as simple as indulging in your favorite ice cream.
Whatever it is, do it!
All of a sudden, those stressful days become more manageable when you having something to look forward to! We all have obligations and responsibilities, but we also hold the power of personal choice and life balance. It doesn’t matter if you are working, travelling, or studying..wherever you are in the world, do what excites you! It’s as simple as that!
